Problems faced by immigrants in the United States continue to limit the way of living for hundreds of people. However, organizations such as the Immigrant Support and Assistance Center (ISAAC) have made assisting these people their sole mission.


ISAAC exists to protect and promote the fundamental rights and civil liberties of the immigrant population of Northwest Indiana. While facing harsh economic times, the members of the community can come to ISAAC for assistance. In addition to financial aid, ISAAC connects undocumented immigrants with educational and career opportunities that might otherwise be difficult for them to obtain. The program remains free of charge for those who need it because ISAAC receives funding from organizations like Foundations of East Chicago (FEC).


“The Foundations of East Chicago has enabled ISAAC to be a [resource] and place where folks can go and be assured that assistance is possible,” Jose Bustos, a representative of ISAAC, said.
